Blurb: Moving to a small town isn’t the peaceful experience Andrew Martinez hoped it would be.

Andrew Martinez needed a change. He was sure he’d lose his mind if he didn’t get out of the city. Between living with his mother and sisters, and the stress of his job, he needed a slower pace. The day he moves to small town Pickleville, he meets the prettiest man he’s ever seen. Andrew doesn’t do long-term relationships, though.

Kyler and Andrew have one night together and Andrew sneaks away in the middle of the night. The only problem is, for once in Andrew’s life, one night isn’t enough. When a serial rapist starts hurting women, Andrew’s life gets even more complicated than if he’d stayed in the city. So much for a slower pace.

Review: Each book in the Pickleville collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. I love the way this author can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by April. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down.

Andrew has grown up with his mother and three sisters. He was a detective who just wanted peace. He decides to move to Pickleville and start a new life. What he had not expected was to come across Kyler. He can tell Kyler is unique and very special. The problem with that was he was only a one night stand guy. What he did was unforgivable and caused Kyler pain.

Kyler has fallen in love with someone who could not love him back. His heart was breaking but he kept his head up and kept going. That and a couple of drinks a night seems to help. That is until six months later, with a rapist on the loose the two men come back into each other’s sight. The passion and fire are still there, but can these two get a long in time to realize that they are perfect together. Out of this story I am more like Andrew but it is Kyler that pulls me in. He is so tender-hearted and what Andrew did makes me want to rip him a new one.

When these two get together they set the sheets on fire and cause every one a bit of friction burns. There is a bit of kink in this story that will have you hotter than a pistol. It is a very fantastic story that is a blast to read.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Adrian is a geneticist for the Glass Research Company. He’s the one who has been turning humans in shifters, but he did it only to save his brother, even if he knew it was a horrible thing to do. The company kidnapped him, and Adrian hasn’t seen him in nearly two years. Thinking Gabriel is probably dead, Adrian decides to run away from the company and turns to the only people who can help him—the Whitedell Pride.

Joshua has known Adrian was his mate for months, but he doesn’t want to mate someone who experimented on humans and shifters alike, not after what happened to his sister thirty years earlier. Still, when Adrian is in danger, Joshua knows he’ll help him.

What will Joshua do when another shifter steps in and decides he wants Adrian?

Will he let Soren have his mate, or will he finally realize that Adrian is his?

Adrian lost all of his family except for his brother. He would do anything for the man and has proven it. When Gabe was kidnaped and held, Adrian had to do a job he hated to find a way to get his brother back. He was a geneticist and had been forced to turn humans into shifters. It didn’t go down the way they thought though.

Oliver had been one of those who had been shifter and Adrian had helped to make it a bit easier. For doing that he had been forgiven by almost all of the pack except for his mate. He knew that by quitting he was probably going to get his brother killed, but he couldn’t do it anymore. He knew that the pack would help him, even if it meant he was going to see his mate. A mate that did not want him and hated him.

Adrian couldn’t be more wrong. Joshua had many issues and one of them was that his sister had been kidnapped and experimented on. He had lost her, but wasn’t sure that he could be a mate to someone like those who had killed his sister. All that changed when Adrian left the company and the company hunted him down. He had to save his mate and to decide if he wants him enough to forget what he did.

This story has a bit of a twist to it that I loved. Especially the squirrel, which had me giggling through most of it.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the first book written by Melody Lane that I have read. The story itself was pretty amazing although the way it was told was a bit disappointing. It comes off like it is written by a newbie. It comes off a little rushed and could have used some slang. It doesn’t take away from the story itself, but continues to stick in my mind. However it has great potential, but it just comes off a bit strange. I truly enjoyed it. The characters were beautifully written with big hearts and great attitude.

Ryan is a vampire and although it does say a bit about how and when, you really don’t get a clear answer on how he became one. All I do know is he hates it so much, that he is basically a test subject. He gets infusions and follows the rules so that one day he will become human once more.

While out to see a speaker, death showed up. Vampires were the target, but lucky for Ryan he had gotten out of the auditorium before it happened. He was a doctor and pretty much had it all under hand, but did appreciate the help of a gorgeous man. To his shock his old class mate was the man who helped him. A man that he had wanted even in high school.

Eric is a shape-shifter who can turn into about any type of domestic dog. He was also a gorgeous bounty hunter. His main focus at the moment was to catch a man and woman wanted by the courts. Many of the leads to the bombing and shootings have led to a group that wanted revenge against vampires.

It turns out that his jumpers were more than they thought. He was also reunited with Ryan. He had wanted Ryan in high school and now he has the chance to make it work.

Like I said these two guys are great but they come off as a bit strange or off. It has a bit of danger to it, a touch of suspense and some hot sex. The story line and plot are pretty damn good.

However it feels rushed and there is just something missing from the whole story that keeps coming to my attention. The problem with that is I just can’t figure it out. It did not take away from the story though. I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading book two.

A Spring-Heeled Jack. Big Foot. Unicorn. Abominable Snowman. Brownie. All things that are not really true. Things that are made up by mad men or those who have spent way too much time in the woods alone. Right…or maybe not.

Meet Bronson, one of the last known Spring-Heeled Jacks in existence. He’s been living in relative peace for the past few decades with a Unicorn and twins, one a Big Foot, the other an Abominable. Sure, their digs may not be the best, an abandoned Insane Asylum, but one has to see the irony in it. Then, one day, a certain Brownie sneaks himself into their lives. One named Nixon.

Bronson immediately feels himself drawn to the other man.
Nixon has spent his life on the run, but not with Bronson. He feels safe and cared for. What’s more, Nixon feels a special connection to the other man. But, before they have time to react to their connection dark forces attack them.

Will the pair live to see another day? If they do, will their desires lead to something more?

Review: Stephani Hecht is one author that you can be guaranteed will give you an amazing story that you will fall in love with. Each book in this series features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.

There is something about the way that this author tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at some point. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

There is a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

Bronson is pretty much the alpha of their little pack. Misfits that don’t really fit in anywhere else. Bronson is a Spring Heeled Jack. There is even a unicorn, and the twins who are Abominable Snowman and Big Foot. When Bronson goes into his office he finds it clean. Not saying he is dirty but the office need the help. He knew of only one species that is fanatic about cleaning. So when the little Brownie shows himself, he is shocked to find out that this little guy is his mate.

Nixon is running from something but it doesn’t really say what it is. He had left his home, which had been similar to Bronson’s. He had feared his little family had been killed and just wanted a safe place to be. It doesn’t hurt that Bronson turns him on. This story has many different twists and turns that will keep your attention. I love the mixture of characters that are offered in this story. Most stories are vampires, shape-shifters and so on but this one gives you guy that quite frankly I have not heard of.

It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun. It will also have you biting your nails with the danger that comes for them. Sexy paranormal men, excitement, a bit of suspense, lots of action and danger is just a bit of what you would get in this story.

I was hoping for a longer story with a bit more to it though. I can’t wait to see what the next book will give me.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Sometimes falling down the rabbit hole involves a rather painful and embarrassing face-plant.

Wren Cleaver only wants to keep his goddaughter safe. Having looked after Penelope since her parents died when she was sixteen, Wren is used to keeping tabs on her. It’s hard for him to remember that she’s an adult. It’s also hard for him to accept that she’s dating a man twice her age, Golren Rabenau. When Wren drops by her home one evening to talk to Penelope about her involvement with Golren—who he discovers is not who he says he is—Wren arrives just in time to see her climb into the man’s SUV.

Wanting to know where Golren is taking his goddaughter, Wren follows them to the grounds of the massive Falias Estate, a place, according to town gossip, has been shrouded in mystery for decades. Sneaking onto the grounds, Wren thinks the arboretum will be a safe place to sneak inside so he can learn a bit more about the place’s occupants. Unfortunately, he’s faced with the shock of his life…massive snakes.

Watching them transform into humans would cause anyone to faint from shock.

Review: Each book in A Paranormal’s Love collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. Although I do have to say when the mates can get pregnant I get stoked. Talk about pay backs for females. I love the way Charlie Richards can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Charlie.

Wren is a hot, sexy human that is only worried about his god-daughter. It seems that she is seeing an older man who didn’t exist prior than seven years before. What he comes across after following her, shocks him enough to faint. He has now been introduced to the paranormal world. It didn’t get him ready for the gargoyle who is taking care of him. Although even in that form the man turns him on faster than any one ever had. He is just too damn afraid of getting hurt.

Perseus was over three hundred years old and he knew that he had given his mate a shock. He understands he has to take it a bit slow, but damn the man gets him all hot. Things heat up pretty well for them both. Perseus’s protection gets a work out when an idiot starts threatening his mate. He is after all one jealous and very protective man. He will protect what is his no matter what.

I love how they get together but for me the fact that Wren is scared of certain parts of the relationship, he is not afraid of the paranormal aspect of it all. He just doesn’t want to get hurt.

However to most he got over it pretty quick, but you will realize that it is the part of mating for Paranormal’s.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

Review: Very interesting beginning with a lot of hot sex between William and Ethan as well as Timothy, Arthur and Tom. I was more interested in the actual story though. Especially when a chunk was blown off the moon and the after effects of it.

Will definitely be looking forward to rest of the series to explain what exactly happened and who Ethan really is.

Good read.

Blurb: One man’s trash is another man’s destiny.

Aiden is the black sheep of his family. Of course, always being covered in grease hasn’t helped, but put anything mechanically broken into his hands and he can fix it. His cold-hearted parents have lived off his talent for years, but apparently, it wasn’t enough.

They sell Aiden to slavers and plan to use the funds to buy themselves a life of high social standing within the city. Dumped on a refuse recycling planet along with other enslaved women and children, Aiden uses his talent to transform an ancient wreck of a cargo transport into their escape plan. His plan would have gone off without a hitch, if he hadn’t been shot in the escape. Bleeding, dying, Aiden locks himself into the cockpit of the ship the second help arrives and aids their landing, knowing that unlike the other slaves who have eager families to return to, he has no one. It’s just better if he fades away from this existence.

Jaylon lost all hope of love years ago, when his intended killed herself on the morning of their wedding, rather than face him over her betrayal. Now, as a medic, he has no time to think of what could have been, until a hunk of metal posing as a ship literally falls from the sky.

When Jaylon breaks down the cockpit door to the sight of a pale, skinny, yet breathtaking man, bleeding out on the floor, he has to wonder if fate has sent him a second chance at a future, or if it is just reopening an old wound and pouring salt onto it.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Now this was an amazing story that I found not only interesting but left me wanting more. One knows that families do not always look-alike but with the way this family is one would want to just shoot them. This story has a pretty good twist to it that I think everyone will find interesting, although it left me hanging in the end. I wanted to know how Jaylon reacts to Aiden’s news. I had a blast reading this story.

Aiden’s family is one of those types that you would love to just put to death. It is just his parents. His siblings are great with him. However he is so very different from them. He is so much smaller and you soon learn a great secret once you start reading. He had been sold and ended up saving several children and four women. It had almost cost him his life. However once Jaylon sees him there is no way he is letting him go.

I loved the ending, talk about pay backs. I would definitely recommend reading this. It has great characters and a story that will draw you in and keep you captivated. It is too short for me but I hope that it is just the start and that there will be a second book to this story.

I loved it and look forward to reading more by this amazing author.

Blurb: Two men. One will do anything for family. One will discover the true meaning of responsibility.

Ross McCord will do anything to fulfill his mother’s dying wish…protect family above all else. He does his best, keeping their sheep herd healthy and strong as he watches over his crippled father, Achaius, and his pretty but dim sister, Skena.

When Chieftain Goth notices Skena’s beauty, he demands to use her as a bride-price to complete an alliance with a neighboring clan. Attempting to keep his sister from being heartbroken, Ross embarks on a dangerous mission to earn a boon from Chieftain Goth. He heads north in search of a secret way for his chieftain’s warriors to attack the clan who took in Goth’s son, Ian.

Much to Ross’s distress, he’s captured by the brawny redhead, Ziethman. He expects to be killed for trespassing, but Ziethman offers a much more pleasurable form of…interrogation. Experiencing sensations he’s never imagined, Ross finds himself craving the other man’s touch.

When Ross learns that Ziethman is more than a man, and is in fact a dragon, can he accept the male’s differences and the help he offers, or will it be too much, sending him running back to his clan to fulfill his mission?

Reviewer: Lisa
 
Review: Each book in the Highland Dragons collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Ziethman is a red dragon and is pretty feisty. He is forever getting in trouble with the elders, although for the life of him he has no idea why. Out protecting, he comes across a human climbing the rocks. He is not only intrigued but turned the hell on. Ross is quite the human and Ziethman is determined that this man is his.

Ross is only trying to do what his mother had wanted. Protecting his sister is not turning out the way it is supposed to. When his idiot Chieftain tells him to find another path through the valley, he finds that will be the only way to keep his sister with him. He just wasn’t expecting to find himself surrounded by dragons. Of course he had not expected to find himself mated to one hell of a gorgeous red dragon, who makes a very sexy human. However he still needs to keep his family safe.

The thing with this series is that the ending always leaves you hanging a bit. You know that the Chieftain wants the sister but you never hear what happens next. However for me it doesn’t take away from the story at all. I have such a blast reading Charlie’s stories. They are so damn entertaining.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break. There is a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.
